Dear Dr. Montanari:

Thank you for your message.

It does seem that Leuren Moret owes you an apology for suggesting
that your spectrographic measurements of the metal particles found
in human tissue were adjusted to show non-uranium metals instead
of uranium.  Absorbed uranium is not likely to be found in
particulate form unless it came from shrapnel.  The uranyl
(uranium(VI)) ion forms ligands with many molecules and is active
in the catalysis of several oxidants including hydroxyl.

On the contrary, the reproductive toxicity of uranium is sufficient
cause for organized opposition to sources of uranium inhalation.
